-- that anti-islamic video that sparked the riots in cairo. that's the confusion, that film or a terrorist attack? they got 20 intelligence reports blaming the film riot in cairo. but, this is critical, those reports were disproved over time. but disproved after petraeus made his initial presentation to congress. so david petraeus believes there's a lot of confusion and a lot of misrepresentation of what he originally told congress when he briefed them initially after the attacks. he wants to go up there tomorrow, sort it all out. he will also say he had his own talking points separate from u.n. ambassador susan rice. that came from somewhere other in the administration than his direct talking point. so he wants to get all this sorted out. he believes it was the al qaeda sympathizer group ansar al sharia that was responsible for the attacks. >> so the question, barbara, is he is convinced that the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi had nothing, nothing to do with that anti-muslim video that'd been posted on youtube, that this was a terrorist attack by this al qaeda affiliated organiz
the consulate were inspired in part by televised scenes of protesters storming the american embassy in cairo, and rage over an anti-muslim video running on the internet. others seemed to have nothing under mind than looting. the first attack created an opportunity for the second attack, the one on the annex. whether it was planned that way all along is not clear. u.s. officials say the four-hour lull gave the attackers time to bring up more firepower in the form of mortars. they fired five rounds. the first two missed. the next three hit. >> pelley: david, thank you. is there a link between energy drinks and 13 deaths? china announces a new leader. and the president makes a promise to victims of sandy when the cbs evening news continues. ♪ constipated? yeah. mm. some laxatives like dulcolax can cause cramps. but phillips' caplets don't. they have magnesium. for effective relief of occasional constipation. thanks.

egypt might go in all of this? >> i think egypt, look, it's quarter to a third of the arab world. cairo is one of the historical centers of the arab world. we don't have a good reading on where these guys are going, the muslim brotherhood. i'm not sure they necessarily do. we don't know how much to take literally what they say and write. they've got their internal politics, the party, the government. there's issues between them and other forces in egypt. they came into government fairly narrowly. but they're clearly trying to deepen their base. so everyone's watching really closely what they're doing with the rewriting of egypt's constitution, how these people want to consolidate power. what they say in the middle east, it's one thing to win an election. that's the easy part. are they willing to lose an election, to set up a political dynamic where there's a level playing field? i don't think we know the answer. >> whenever we're talking israel and hamas, you have to think about iran and its role. some of the long-range missile sites they bombed yesterday in those 50 strikes had bombs s

in benghazi were spontaneously inspired by the u.s. embassy in cairo and involved into a direct assault. there are indications extremists participated. there's a hedge there. but the benghazi attack was not referred to as a terrorist event. however, ambassador re is a cabinet member. that means she gets daily intelligence briefings like the president does, the content of those are not known. republican senators say that she misled the public and that they will block her confirmation as secretary of state. the white house is saying they can get at least five republicans to join the democratic majority to get her through and confirmed if nom napted as secretary. meantime cbs has learned that the current secretary of state hillary clinton will go to the hill and answer questions from congressional investigators but she's not likely to do that until the state department's own investigation is complete, sources close to that investigation say that likely won't happen until the end of december. >> they have not yet interviewed the secretary of state. >> they have not. two months in, investiga
